From intern to senior creative in 3 years. I just don’t buy it. I know titles don’t mean shit, but what’s up with the inflation?

Title inflation is always cheaper than paying you what you are worth.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure there are those who deserve it. But in my mind, more time and experience make someone senior.

Lies or talent. Who knows? I'm currently working with a CD that makes design contractors write decks and present lol

I can believe that. I went from intern to mid level in 1, but I’m not paid well at all because of it. 🤷‍♂️

I agree with you. I didn’t skip junior though. But I’d feel like a fraud if I had the title senior in 3 years.

How long from career inception do you all think is long enough to become a “legitimate” senior, assuming you’ve been rocking at your job the whole time and making linear moves? I’ve never been able to find a consistent timeline from my superiors.

All the job for mid level say 3-5 years experience. So, I’d guess 6 years to be “senior.”

I know someone that went from intern to ACD in 3.5 years. Awards are involved, sure, but its still way too much.

Hi I am having some trouble on choosing between Deloitte and PwC for a 2022 winter internship. Some pros for Deloitte include being the largest firm, and the promotion to senior being 2 years opposed to 3 at PwC. Additionally, Deloitte offers a pension and has Deloitte university. The pros of PwC include a gym in the office and a younger work force. They also give me much less of a “corporate” feel and seem to offer more flexibility. I’m wondering if anyone could give me any advice on deciding?
